The Hotel Michela is not easily accessed by public transport - from a distance at least, but that is its only real disadvantage. It is a modern detached building, among others of similar attractive style, which put me in mind of Austrian guesthouse accommodation. Lots of trees around made it a very pleasant area.
Let's start with location: this is ideal. To get to the sea you'll need to find an entrance to a 'free beach'. For the nearest, turn right out of the gate and go to the sea front road. Turn left here and it's only a short stroll to the free beach. There's a bar which does snacks and you can sit there and enjoy the sun. There is a restaurant nearby . Walk a bit further and there's a pier for a sweeping view of the bay.
If you want shops, other bars and restaurants and a supermarket, turn left out of the gate and walk through a little copse to the next road. There, turn right and you'll soon come to bars, shops, restaurants, a supermarket and a little park. If you want to make a round trip you can turn right off this road and end up at the sea front and the pier.
The hotel itself welcoming, with a lounge and a dining room. Rooms are very modern and spotless, and mine had a large pleasant balcony. The big snag for me was that there is no lift. I find stairs difficult, so they moved me to a lower floor and took all my luggage for me. This is typical of the service there, which is helpful and pleasant. I had the impression that it was family run.
The restaurant isn't public, so guests book and choose their menu each day at breakfast. I'm very glad that I did this as the food was very good. I can't remember how much they charge for this 'half board' option, but it wasn't a lot and was very good value. You can also book lunch, but after a good breakfast you probably wouldn't bother.
There is a terrace to the restaurant but it wasn't really the weather for it when I was there.
There is plenty of outside space to sit if you just want to relax in the garden, and there is a car park.
In summary, a good location once you've got there, and a pleasant and comfortable place to stay. Elderly travellers note the lack of lift and specify first floor when you book. The stairs do have handrails.
